2022 Colour Trends. We pick flooring styles that embrace Pantone and Dulux’s Colours of the Year

If you like to be inspired by the latest interior trends, a great place to start when building the foundations of your interior design colour palette is to find inspiration in the latest Colour of the Year picks announced annually by leading colourists Pantone and the UK’s leading paint brand Dulux.

If either of their 2022 colour picks grab your attention and you are wondering how to introduce flooring that embraces or complements these shades perfectly we are here to help.

Let us introduce you to the 2022 Dulux and Pantone Colour of the Year picks and showcase a selection of our flooring styles that will either deliver on these colour tones or be the perfect harmonising tone to complement them.

Pantone Colour of the Year 2022, Very Peri

Veri Peri Pantone Colour of the Year 2022

For this year’s Colour of the Year the Pantone Colour Institute has chosen a tone that displays carefree confidence and animates creative spirit. Pantone’s  Very Peri brings a novel perspective, visiting the trusted and beloved blue colour family and injecting it with violet red undertones to create a dynamic purple presence.

Its alluring tones leave you with a creative choice to add touches of Very Peri through dressings, go bold with complete wall design, or deliver it with subtlety directly in your flooring choice.

Here are our pick of flooring styles that will embrace the tones of Very Peri, all available to buy in the Vincent Flooring showroom.

Dulux Colour of the Year 2022, Bright Skies

Bright Skies Dulux Colour of the Year 2022

Every year the Dulux Colour specialists assemble a top team of international design experts to discuss the new global trends that will affect us all. Using these insights and a wealth of colour expertise, the team then chooses a Colour of the Year.

For 2022 this colour pick is Bright Skies. An airy, light blue that’s fresh, open, invigorating and reflects the limitless skies around us. It delivers a flavour of the natural world and will bring a breath of fresh air into an interior space. The soothing tones bring a hint of the natural world inside, and it is also a colour that works with a host of other  shades from soft neutrals to joyful brights.
